I Can Be a Lap Kitty


Dante showing his love, he is definitely a lap kitty.... although, we still have to use the leash on him. When do kitty's calm down? He's very aggressive towards the other cats still... attacking them, running after them and biting them. I hope one day I can leave them all in the same room and they can all get along.

Well at least he's bonded to his people, that's a good sign. Meezers are difficult....but we come around eventually.

Sorry he's still doing that :( I agree with Latte, it's a good sign he likes to sit in your laps.

Have a great weekend :-D

With most cat introductions we did the whole separation thing and slow introduction and then kind of let them work it out. Georgia was different though and just too overwhelmed and aggressive.
It took Georgia a few months, and we still don't leave them all alone when we're out. And we really had to get strict with the time-outs so she learned any agression or indimidation was wrong. Not mean timeouts, just the message that if you're attacking, you're going to be alone for a while. And if you're nice everybody gets to play and have treats. At the first sign of aggression she was immediately calmly removed. Eventually after she hit or spit at one of the others she'd even run into the bedroom herself. And then she can come back out when calm. This literally happened 100 times a day for many weeks. Now we're down to maybe once a day. She'll now sit near them and even play fairly nicely with them. They're all happier. It was (and still is) slow and frustrating but we're still making good progress. It takes so much patience, but Dante'll figure it out.

Sitting in your lap is a good start. Trust takes time, especially those kitties who have had a not-so-good time up until now.

Meezers can be the slowest of cats sometimes--it's not stupidity but stubborness... sigh.

You're doing better than me. I am 13 and I am still not a lap kitty. I love to lie down beside my mom but not on her lap.

Zoe and Indy have some good advice there. Some cats just take a long while to learn to socialise with other cats. Some Feliway diffusers around your home might help all the cats feel a bit more mellow and secure with each other.

OMG, You must be a Siamese! Since I only see the backside of you, I will investigate further, but my Yum Yum, a seal point Siamese is very cat aggressive, too. Wow! Siamese is another word for Tempermental!!!!!

I'm not a lap kitty. And I hate being picked up. I don't fight with poo-face Salvador though. He fights with me.
